Ohio State Farm Bill Decision Central

The 2018 Farm Bill is a complicated piece of legislation to say the least. We have a tremendous team of Extension professionals at the county and CFAES department level who have combined forces with industry partners and others to summarize the policy itself and its implications, suggest practical applications, and help make it applicable for our clientele on a local level. The Farm Bill Summit held in April was a cooperative effort between Ohio State, Purdue University, the University of Kentucky, and Farm Credit Mid-America. In addition, more than 30 meetings for dairy producers this summer and now 110+ meetings for crop producers will help us reach 5,000+ producers before March 2020. The USDA – Farm Service Agency, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Ohio’s commodity organizations, and several other entities have also partnered with us to bring this information to Ohio producers and others. You can check out their poster at the Extension Annual Conference next week, as well as posters that highlight 30+ other outstanding Extension program and partnership examples!
